Edwin Jackson could be destined for bullpen role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson may be headed to the bullpen after giving up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings in his latest start Wednesday, ESPNChicago.com reports.

"We're going to assess and evaluate and see where we go," manager Rick Renteria said.

Jackson has turned in just two quality starts in his last nine outings, going 1-6 during that stretch and watching his ERA rise from 4.99 to 6.09.

"No one wants to be moved," Jackson said Wednesday. "The only thing you can do if you don't like it is go out there and pitch out of jams. I have to get back to having fun. Tonight was an example of absolutely not doing that. Just being uptight and battling yourself."
